8 ways to forget about an ex even if you still love him

8. Believe in your heart that hoping for his happiness is best

“I’ll think to myself, ‘I broke up with him because I truly loved him.’” Convince yourself that breaking up was the only way to prioritize his happiness above all else. If you can believe your regrets are just your ego talking, you can convince yourself of anything.

Not dwelling on the past and changing your present situation are the keys to eliminating regrets and making a clean emotional break. No matter what, try to convince yourself that thinking about the past is not good for you and start searching for new love when you feel ready.
